2024 Mercedes-Benz E-Class Spy Shot and Video: Next-gen takes mid-size

The next-generation Mercedes-Benz E-Class has been seen re-testing in sedan disguise.

The current E-Class 2017 has arrived for the model year and has been given a mid-cycle update for 2021. In the Mercedes tradition, we should see the arrival of the redesigned E-Class in 2023 as the 2024 model.

The roof line looks a little more sloping towards the back than the current model, which seems to give the design a more dynamic look. With rumors that both the CLS-Class and the GT 4-Door Coupe are not being replaced, perhaps the designers were free to make the E-Class a little sportier.

The platform is an updated version of Mercedes’ MRA rear-wheel-drive architecture that debuted in the 2021 S-Class and has since appeared in the 2022 C-Class. The updated platform benefits from weight savings, primarily through the increased use of aluminum over steel. This is made possible by advanced joining technology, including casting of steel from aluminum.

The platform is not designed to fit battery-electric powertrains, although we do see electric powertrains across the range, including the final E63 from AMG. The E63 could potentially end with the same V-8-based hybrid system that debuted the 2023 GT 63S E Performance 4-door coupe. The system can deliver a maximum of 843 hp and 1,033 pound-feet of torque. However, there are rumors that the size of the next E 63 may be reduced to 4-cylinder, just like the next C 63.

Mercedes has just launched the 2023 EQE electric sedan, and has promised a full-electric lineup by 2030, which means we can look forward to the last E-Class to feature internal-combustion engines.

A redesigned E-Class wagon should also come, both in a regular and all-terrain manner. It is unlikely that we will see another generation of two-door E-Class variants. Mercedes is said to be preparing a new CLE-Class to replace both the C-Class and E-Class coupe and convertible models.

Stay tuned as development continues.
